We've seen digital photo frames shifting their feature set over the lastfew months in particular; it used to be that a large screen, maybe aWi-Fi module and a few card slots made a decent frame. Now, it's not astandout frame without something really radical--something like aprinter, or something like a live data connection with AT&T.

T-Mobile's Cameo frame sparked this idea around a year ago, but thatone barely took off. It has all but moved off of the radar screen, butwe think more of that had to do with the odd selling situation thananything else. First, you had to be a T-Mobile customer to buy one; incase that wasn't limiting enough, there was also a monthly fee forusing it, regardless of how often you used the connected features.

In case you're still wondering what we're referring to, we're talkingabout a connected digital photo frame. It's a standard frame, withstandard ports, but it also includes a SIM card slot and can becontacted via the web. Pandigital has introduced one of its own thisweek at CES, and thanks to a partnership with AT&T, users can havephotos emailed to the frame. The Photo Mail LED Digital Photo Frameships with 300 image downloads, and after those are used up, more canbe purchased through Pandigital's site. You can inform friends of yourframe's email address, and when they send the photo, it'll instantlypop up on the screen and give you the option to download. It's pricedat $149.99.

Yet another device that I never knew I needed.

My Digital Photo Frame has a 22" screen and is called a computer.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

RED ALERT! RED ALERT! You've just paid $150 to get trapped into a proprietary single-vendor service!

Rainy weekend activity #522: Send picture of shirtless Tom Welling to friend's digital photo frame using forged SMTP headers. Preferably, when his parents are visiting.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
